We are delighted to announce that we have achieved a UK first! Ospa has been awarded a new global standard for facilities management from the British Standards Institution (BSI).
As a part of HFD, Scotland’s leading commercial property and investment company, it’s an honour to add this to their long list of accreditations. The BSI’s ISO 41001 quality mark recognises various management practices, including our approach to reducing environmental impact, financial responsibility, building and facilities efficiency, and health and safety.
Our Managing Director, Rosemary Hill, said:
“We are committed to delivering the best service for our occupiers, and this latest accreditation reflects our drive for continuous improvement. The world of work is changing rapidly, and we recognise that occupiers need more flexibility and are placing greater importance on the environmental footprint of their operations - which are two major elements of the new ISO framework. “
The accreditation reflects the changing nature of the workplace and acknowledges our and HFD’s focus on sustainability, new technologies and our flexible response to occupiers’ needs and requirements.
“Achieving globally recognised quality standards underlines our long-standing approach to efficiency, compliance and health and safety and gives formal recognition to our range of management services. Through our serviced offices, we aim to support the development and growth of our occupiers by taking care of their facilities management and office needs, allowing them to concentrate on the day-to-day running and critical functions of their businesses.”
At Ospa, we manage a portfolio of 475,000 sq. ft. of offices for around 250 occupiers across Glasgow and Scotland’s central belt, including space at Strathclyde Business Park and Hamilton International Technology Park.
Our affiliation with HFD means we can cover a range of services from security and landscaping to IT and connectivity. This new facilities management standard adds to HFD’s existing accreditations, including ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management. We are honoured to have Ospa and HFD be recognised once again!
